I emailed Scarborough Borough Council to inform them that a light bulb in a street lamp needed to be replaced.
I received the following reply:
“From 1 April 2011 North Yorkshire County Council took over responsibility for all highways, lighting and traffic issues within the Scarborough borough area and I have forwarded you enquiry to their Customer Services Centre.”
At a time when public expenditure is being cut, it is completely unbelievable that some highly paid Officer in Northallerton is responsible for changing a light bulb in a street lamp on a minor road in Scarborough.
You couldn’t make it up.
